HB 158 - Fiscal Note 1
This bill allows Alaskans who are eligible for the Permanent Fund Dividend (PFD) and file their application electronically to
elect on their application to direct funds from their dividend payment to the state's general fund, in a separate section
from those contributions under AS 43.23.130 (Pick.Click.Give). Contributions to Pick.Click.Give will be prioritized and paid
before contributions to the general fund. The application would allow contributions in increments of $25, up to the total
amount of the dividend they are entitled to receive. The electronic PFD application will be modified to include an option
for Alaskans to contribute to the general fund with notification that seven percent of the contribution will be used for
administrative costs. This type of contribution is excluded from applications being filed on behalf of an Alaskan by a public
There are one-time costs associated with the implementation of the proposed legislation detailed below. The PFD Division
is unable to project the amount of general fund revenue generated as a result of the proposed legislation and has
therefore indicated the changes in revenue as indeterminate.
